Why AHS? — People!! Never have I found so many kind, generous, and dedicated people in one school. This includes the entire school community: teachers, administration, staff, and families. I’ve never worked in a better environment, an environment where we all have the same goals and we all have the same beliefs.
What have you learned at AHS? — Besides understanding more about the amazing curriculum I teach (like diagramming and US history), I have gotten a better feeling about who I am. AHS has given me experiences that have taught me more about myself than I ever knew I could learn.
Education — Bachelor of Arts, Elementary Education, Brigham Young University
Curriculum highlight — The Secret Garden- this has always been one of my favorite books of all time. We read it in the spring when the earth begins to wake up after being asleep for a time. The main reason I love this book so much is because it teaches us that change is possible. Happiness and love can come to those who have never received it or those who feel like they just don’t deserve it. Not only does it teach us that change is possible, but it teaches that usually this change doesn’t come naturally. It is something that we have to work at for ourselves. I love that!!
“Most of all, I hope my students know that I loved teaching them. I feel like it’s the biggest privilege to be able to help open a child’s mind, and that’s what I hope I’ve done.”
